The 62' double-plug door Express Reefer first rolls into TYCO's
line-up in the 1973-74 catalog. The car has two variations. Originally, it was offered with the steps cast 'open' and later
is found with the steps 'filled-in' with plastic. This 'filled-in' step style became common for many TYCO cars during the
mid-1970s. Possibly it was done to make the steps less likely to break off or it may have simply been a simplification to
the mold. The car debuts for $3.50 in 1973-74, then drops to $2.50 the next year.
